Home/Sessions/The Vices
The Vices hit the ground running in 2019, kicking off their career with shows at ESNS, supporting Yungblud and Feeder, and touring the UK. The band also played 25 shows as part of the Popronde. Their music is best described as Cage the Elephant and The Strokes’ love child, with a hint of surf. This is evident on popular singles Sly Smiled Berlin Child and Boy, the latter of which earnt the band the 3FM Talent title in April 2020. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the band kept busy by putting on a number of safe, self-organised shows including a sold out edition of the first ever ViceFest in De Oosterpoort, Groningen. With hundreds and thousands of streams to their name on the back of two self-released EPs (2019’s Life Grows and 2020’s Good Morning City, Now Let Me Sleep…), The Vices eventually signed to Mattan Records in October 2020. With a debut album set for spring 2021 – of which lead single In and Out is due in October.
